Hedi Shoots For Miuccia

Hedi Slimane's photography resume (we imagine he has a separate one for design) is growing exponentially.

He just shot Prada's Spring 09 ad campaign - for the boys of course.

The black and white images feature Louis and Claude Simonon, sons of The Clash's Paul Simonon, looking more moody than punk. A statement from Prada said they focused on capturing the first time models in a state of "reflection and introspection".

Meanwhile Steven Meisel shot at least eight girls including Toni Garnn for the women's wear campaign.

Whether Miuccia chose the former Dior Homme designer for the boys because of his fame and influence on men's fashion or because of his photo skills, we'll never know.

If he got to shoot the women, too, then we'd know she was just as much a fan of Hedi's work behind the camera as Karl was of his work on the runway.
